Weird desires

I feel like I'm channeling Tam or Caleb or something.

I have a strange desire for a mousegun in a mouse caliber; .25 or .32ACP. A Baby Browning, Colt Vest Pocket, FN1906... Yeah. That'd work nicely. (I toyed with the idea of a Keltec P32, but simply put ... NO.)

I even looked up reloading data for .25s. A one-pound jar of powder would load four to six THOUSAND rounds. Most of the loads are in the 1.2-1.5gr range. That just tickles my funny bone.

My own weird Europellet desire is for a Mauser HsC in .32ACP. Have liked the looks of that particular gun since the 1970's when I saw it on the cover of an issue of Guns & Ammo magazine.

I would recommend the .32 ACP over the .25 ACP.

Of course, that is because I own a .25

It really is a very anemic round....a hot .22 would be better.

Taurus is making their TCP line in .32 -- I've had really good luck with my PT145.

You know, I have that Spanish Clone from the 30's of a Baby Browning (a "Libia") that I can let you have cheap. I think you shot it up at Jay's shoot last summer. We can make a deal. I"m doing some Changes to my Gun Battery, and it's niche has been taken, so rather than have a Safe Queen, if I can find a Good Home for it...

I know exactly what you mean. A Vest Pocket would be almost completely useless, and carrying it for self defense would be a terrible idea, but I want one more than is healthy.
